Pros

I've had this car since 1991 and have put 230,000 miles on the original engine and it is still going!  I have made it through snowstorms in it where SUVs have gotten stuck --although that might speak to my comfort with the car coupled with its reliability.

Cons

The window motors (and only in the past 3 out of 20 years) are the only things I've had trouble with, but the latest set have beem working great.

Ms — For a convertible, there is a good amount of trunk space and reasonable leg room in the back seat. It is still nice and short, so it fits in the garage with the lawn tractor on my side. It has been an incredibly reliable little car and I fully expect to be driving it daily for years to come.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Shadow Race Car — My first race car. It was underpowered and wouldnt turn at all. Broke a lot but parts were cheap and easy to find. Started life as an auto but I fixed that before it even saw the track. Had 2 big wrecks and it caught fire once.

Pros

Drive it hard and not care what happens to it, ummm It has a glowing shift knob?, Has a remote starter possibly worth more than the car (Which doesnt say much)

Cons

Idle fluctuates constantly, Spedomeder doesn't work, Odometer quit years ago, Transmission doesn't shift at WOT (Wide-Open Throttle), Gutless now that it has a muffler, Hubcaps fell off years ago, Aftermarket deck shorts out and stops working,

Na — CLUB SHADOW LIVES!! As a first car, the shadow served its purpose. It lasted 7 years, through which it needed a new transmission, new exhaust, bumper covers, etc. Everytime i went over a bump, the dome light would come on and the dinging that happens when you leave the lights on and open the door would come on. Needless to say that drained many a battery!
